Father Brian Bransfield presents a riveting understanding of John Paul II’s idea of marriage and human sexuality. Utilizing insights from scripture, the Fathers of the Church, and contemporary theology, the beauty of marriage is clearly defined. Simultaneously, he grapples with the challenges to family life that have sprung from the industrial, sexual, and technological revolutions. Fr. Bransfield brings to bear examples from contemporary literature and pop culture that illustrate the nature of sin, selfishness, and false understandings of what it means to be human. He draws from the teachings of the Church and especially John Paul II what an authentic understanding of the person is. The solution to the tragedy of sin and vice springs from the gifts of the Holy Spirit that empowers us to live lives of dignity and heroic love. All those involve with marriage preparation will find this program an invaluable resource.
